Homemade Ant Traps

August 16, 2011

Many ants inside a home.I used this thrifty recipe instead of purchasing expensive ant baits, and it really works well because the sugar draws the ants in. It only takes a couple of days to see results, and it is disposable.

You will need:

Poke 5 holes evenly spaced around the container about one inch from the top using the screwdriver.

Mix 1 cup Borax with 3 cups of sugar (good for about 6 traps). Fill each container halfway. Add water to make it soupy. Add a spoonful of peanut butter, stir. Put lid on.

Set traps. Check back in a few days and you should see results.
